Friday Five

This was a quick week! Okay time to share our Friday Five.

  1. The hills around us are filled with yellow-orange poppies. People come to our city to hike up and see them. It’s really amazing. I didn’t get a chance to snap my own picture, but this is what it looks like: 
  2. I’ve been to the gym twice this week and if I can get there this morning, that will make three which would be great. But, Wizard and I may be coming down with a cold, and if we are, any guesses where we got it? While the gym is good for many things, it also attracts people who don’t have the courtesy to stay away when they are sick :-(. It could just be allergies though, we’re having a lot of those here in So. Cal. with the wildly swinging weather.
  3. Tuesday, Wizard and I went to hang out with Turbo. We had so much fun playing with him! We took him for a walk, played soccer (he kicks a ball, it’s adorable), played with toys, and finally, he fell asleep on me. He slept three and a half hours–we wore the kid out, LOL!
  4. Wizard and I looked at some one-story houses this week. Then we stressed over numbers. Then we bought a lotto ticket and drank some wine. But life is good, we have a home, the family is healthy, and we’ll move when the time is right.
  5. Today I’m meeting Biker Witch (my sister) for lunch and a little retail therapy. That’s always a good day.

I didn’t talk about writing, but I’m working when I can. I need a few more hours of energy in the day to get everything done! So that’s my Friday Five, now I’d love to hear yours!

Have a great weekend!

    So pretty! Yay for making it to the gym, but boo for germs. I hope it is just allergies and not this crud thing that’s making its rounds across the nation. Yay for Turbo time! Gah, I wish property prices weren’t so high for you over there. Enjoy your day out with Biker Witch! And yeah, write when you can. That’s all you can do. :hugs:

    1) I’m so over this yo-yo weather we’ve been having – cold, warm, up down up down up down. Ugh.
    2) I can’t believe it’s already March.
    3) I’m reading what I thought was a book 2. Then I went to Goodreads and discovered it’s a 1.5 and it’s a novella. I feel a little cheated now.
    4) I have this overwhelming urge to bake stuff lately. Yesterday, I kept it down to just cake cookies, but I have two new bread recipes to try that are calling my name. Except we don’t need anymore baked goods in the house. Blerg.
    5) I also have the fixin’s for turkey noodle soup that I really should make soon to free up space in my freezer. Of course, then the soup will take up space… it’s a vicious cycle.

    Yay! Glad the fires and weather haven’t hampered the flowers. Yay Turbo! Yay Biker Witch! Boo colds/sinuses. Been there, still trying to recuperate. Okay, my five:

    1) Winter waited until this week to truly invade. And next week is going to be even colder.

    2) Still mostly writing snippets but plot things on a couple of projects are settling in. I’ll get there.

    3) DNF’d a book last night. Good thing it was a freebie. Plus, it was so bad, I actually left a GR review. Amazon reviews were all positive. Makes me wonder if they were reading the same book.

    4) I’m trying to switch up our dinner routine. We’ve had hamburgers, chicken corden bleu, lasagna, steak and sweet potato tots, and…maybe salmon tonight.

    5) It’s my birthday. It’s frigid outside. I need gas and groceries. :lol: Guess who’s going to get dressed and go do that…

    Y’all have an awsesome weekend!

    1. SO pretty :).
    2. Yippee for the gym. Just keep it slow. Lucky Maggie getting her walks in again ;). Yuck -allergies.
    3. Glad you got to hang with Turbo. He kicks the ball :).
    4. Always fun to look at houses but not to stress on costs.
    5. Hope you had a great time with Biker Witch.

    1a. Happy Birthday Silver :)!
    2a. Smacked my head (an inch up from where the head connects to the spine) into a railing while vacuuming this morning. The egg is the size of a golf ball. Hurt like the crazy :(.
    3a. Made the cats vet appointment. It will be on DIL’s birthday this Wednesday ;). We’re having Cassie’s birthday dinner this Sat.
    4a. Went to get gas this morning and the scanner wouldn’t scan my card. All other pumps were being used. It took 20 minutes to get gas because I had to go inside and have the attendant do everything by hand.
    5a. Just ordered some new CBD/magnesium cream. We’ll see if this helps with some of the RA ache/pain.

    Have a great weekend.

    B.E., the cold virus is really getting around. Right now, Wizard is sicker than me. I cancelled with Biker Witch–I don’t want to get her or Biker Hubby sick. Okay let’s talk about you:

    1) I don’t blame you for being over the yo-yo weather!
    2) Same here on March. I was surprised when I had to change the month on my blog to schedule the post.
    3) I’m sorry you feel cheated :-( It’s fine if I know that’s what I’m buying, but I don’t like finding out afterward.
    4) I’m not help, I totally think you should bake the bread! I love bread!
    5) The turkey noodle soup might be worth the freezer space.

    Hope you have a good weekend!
    HOpe you ha

    Silver HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Wishing you the best year ever! I thought of both you and BE with this cold. Not fun. Hope you feel fully recovered soon. Okay for your 5:

    1) Winter is late in your area! But I hope it’s not too bad
    2) All you can do is keep trying. It’s what I’m doing here.
    3) That book must have really sucked. Good that you warned others.
    4) It’s so easy to get in a dinner rut. Hope the switch up is keeping things fresh and delicious.
    5) Happy Birthday (again!). Hope it wasn’t too miserable going out in the cold to do your errands.

    Wishing you a great birthday weekend!

    Viki, this morning I cancelled with Biker Witch :-( She really doesn’t need to be exposed to the cold crud. Very disappointing but not worth getting her sick. We’ll figure out a one story someday. For now, we’re okay here. Now let’s talk about you:

    1) :-)
    2) OUCH! I’m so sorry. I hope the soreness and swelling eases soon. That sounds like a spot that would make your head, neck and shoulders hurt. Housecleaning is dangerous!
    3) I bet the cat won’t be pleased. Hope Cassie is feeling better now, and she has a great birthday next week.
    4) Ugh that’s so frustrating! I’d also be concerned about that scanner. Keep an eye on your card, just in case it was a clone to steal the credit card info. I’m paranoid that way.
    5) I hope the cream helps! Getting relief isn’t easy.

    Have a great weekend, and hope Cassie’s birthday dinner is fabulous.
